Damn, now I have to buy another handgun. The 9mm PPQ has quickly become my favorite. When I first handled one I wished they had it in .45 and heard they might bring it out in that caliber. Now it looked like they will. I have something to buy myself for Christmas.

Walther Introduces a New Caliber PPQ

(FORT SMITH, Ark.) - New to the Walther line of legendary pistols is the PPQ .45 ACP. Designed for personal protection and recreational shooting, this .45 represents the pinnacle of German craftsmanship. The gun is equipped with the Carl Walther signature quick defense trigger, which improves accuracy and allows for precise follow up shots. The PPQ .45 is fashioned with the traditional front and rear slide serrations for superior handling during use, and features fully ambidextrous controls like all PPQ models.
The PPQ .45 is without equal in the striker fired polymer framed centerfire pistol market. Like all other PPQ models the trigger is a crisp 5.6 lbs. making it the best out of the box trigger in the industry. This new .45 houses three separate safeties helping make it a truly capable and safe handling firearm when being used on the range or when carried concealed. Accessories can easily be mounted on the mil-spec Picatinny rail. The overall length is 7.4 inches, and a magazine capacity of 12 rounds, and a polygonal rifled 4.25 inch barrel which is an upgrade from the traditional button rifling process.
Cyndi Flannigan, Walther Arms' Vice President of Sales and Marketing says of the new pistol, "We are excited to bring a .45 Auto to the Walther line. This new caliber and product offering is a benchmark for Walther and the PPQ," says Flannigan. "We have built it to the same exacting German standards that deliver the ultimate home defense and personal protection firearm."
Adding the .45 caliber to the Walther handgun line expresses Walther's dedication to continued innovation and expansion in the fast growing personal protection industry. The PPQ .45 ACP will hit the market and be available in retail stores on October 1st, 2015.
Walther has earned the trust of law enforcement professionals, recreational shooters, and athletes through its line of reliable pistols, competition guns and tactical rimfire replicas. Walther Arms manufactures and markets firearms of various calibers ranging from .22 to .45.- See more at:

12 Round mag.
It will be at least two years befroe Walther even acknowledges the need for a 10 rounder. :-(
I'm optimistic that they will have them from the get go. There are too many states with that restriction to not make them.
